    I am so sorry to hear of Sherry’s passing. We were good friends in high school, both military brats, both husbands were in the military, both widows, and both had breast cancer. If I’m not mistaken we rode the same bus from Ft. Rucker to Carroll High. Lost touch over the years. I lived in Headland for several years until recently when I moved to Colorado. I wish I had searched for her before hearing of her passing. May God bless you all and so sorry for your loss.

    Please accept my sincerest condolences on Sherry's passing. She was a truly kind and loving woman; I remember her joy and exuberance as a child and her compassion and joy when I visited in more recent years. I knew her to be a loving daughter and sister; a blessed woman.
